Rainy Days are Better with You Card using the Playing in the Rain Bundle. Touches of Ink Blog Hop. June 2024

  Good Evening Everyone,

Today I'm taking part in the Touches of Ink Blog Hop! We hop once a month and don't have a set theme - but we are encouraged to focus on a Bundle or a Suite.

I've decided to use the Playing in the Rain bundle. It's a set that's been in the catalgoue a while, it carried over but I've only just got it - so couldn't wait to play! Especially as we seem to be in a rut right now with the weather, it's totally undecided and we are seeing a little sunshine sprinkled in between some showers, so I thought this was perfect!

what do you think?


Thick Basic White card stock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 3 1/2" x 5 1/4"


Azure Afternoon Card Stock

1 - 5 1/2" x 3 3/4"


Take the thick basic white card stock and fold along the score line to create your card base. Add the Azure Afternoon card stock to the card front.

Ink up the clouds image using memento ink and stamp a few clouds across the top of the Basic White Piece. Add a row of flowers along the bottom edge. Colour in the centres of the flowers in Daffodil Delight and add a little shading on the rain clouds with balmy blue. 

Ink up the sentiment in Memento ink and add above the flowers as left as you possibly can.

Add this panel to the card front.

On a scrap of Basic White stamp the cute fox image.  Colour in with your Stampin Blends and then cut out using the coordinating die and your Mini Cut & Emboss Machine.

Pop a few dimensionals on the back of the fox and add him to the right of the sentiment.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today - please take a few minutes to continue through the hop and get lots of inspiration from these talented ladies. Next up is Janice
